    Nice bowing segment plowing through west central Illinois. Wouldn’t mind getting a healthy drink before the heatwave, but it appears the heaviest precipitation will fall to my SW.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Complaint/Banter Thread

    One of the absolute worst starts to summer I can ever remember. Temps running right around -3.5 for the month, wouldn’t be bad if the damn rain would stop. This pattern has been relentless. Honestly though, I said this back in April, this spring/early summer has been very 2013 ish.

    It appears many local farmers around here just took the insurance pay out. Even after the 1 week mild/dry spell many fields remain untouched. Going to be crazy in August to not see very much corn up.

    Dropped down to 48. Paducah and Cape Girardeau tied their record lows.

    June 2019 General Discussion

    Between the flooding out in the plains for the cattle farmers, and the flooding in the Midwest for crop farmers, a wetter than normal June will be a disaster. Local farmers had a meeting yesterday pertaining to crop insurance, if crops aren’t in the ground by the 5th, the insurance is voided. Heard a rumor some farmers are opting even planting and just taking an insurance check. It’s bad guys.

    This storm just west of Champaign really getting its act together. Had some broad rotation and a hook echo.

    Not one, not two, but THREE EF-1 tornadoes confirmed in Champaign county early Sunday morning per the NWS. One of the tornadoes that hit Urbana had winds of 90-100mph. Pretty impressive.

    A local farmer was interviewed last night about the planting progress and how slow progress has been made. He had been farming since 1984 claiming this is the latest on record that he can remember by far. By May 28th 90-95% of the corn crop should be planted, and roughly 50% of the bean crop. As of right now 30-35% of the corn crop has been planted, and beans remain around 10% planted. Apparently after June 1st the yield goes down 17%.

    Thinking about heading out here soon. If anyone wants to meet up somewhere just send a DM. Should be a nice event unfolding.

    Multiple large trees uprooted in and around the Champaign-Urbana area. I’m just going to assume the very soggy ground is contributing to the uprooted trees, we gusted to 63mph last night.

    Looks like the NWS was surveying damage in Muncie, which is 30 minutes from me. They concluded an EF-1 with winds of 105mph.
